Free speech in second place

A Danish conference on free speech and against radicalization scheduled for this summer has been put on hold. The reason: the Danish government worries that Dutch Parliamentarian Geert Wilders will attend and embarrass them by making use of his right to free speech.

The Danish foreign office wants to stall the conference until after December, when it is hosting a climate change conference. The officials worry that Wilders' presence might offend Muslim governments who would then boycott the conference. (Thanks to Jihad Watch.)

Ladies, next time you go to Copenhagen, be sure to throw a headscarf into your suitcase. By the time you get there, you might need it.
